Over the last eight years, Nacional Records has made a name for themselves as the home for contemporary Latin Alternative music. Their roster spans the spectrum — from ragged rock, to soothing electronic and rollicking hip-hop, all of it hailing from South of the Border and beyond. They’re home to multiple Grammy-nominated artists — among them, Manu Chao, Nortec Collective, Los Amigos Invisibles, Ana Tijoux and Kinky — as well as buzz-heavy newcomers like Diego Garcia, Mexican Institute of Sound and The Pinker Tones.
